THEIR TROUBLES didn't end with their release from jail. Eight Arab men from Evansville, Ind., who were rounded up in the hysteria following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, had been cleared of any wrongdoing. The tip that led to their detention as "material witnesses" was bogus. Dead wrong. But suspicion continued to dog them. Four ended up on a federal crime registry that raised alarms when they tried to fly, rent an apartment and apply for permanent residency in the United States. Thomas V. Fuentes helped put an end to their ordeal.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The 11th-ranked Florida State Seminoles didn't want to make headlines yesterday, not in the upset round of the NCAA basketball tournament.They had made enough news during the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, when they lost to Clemson in the first round, so they were hoping to sneak through their opening-round NCAA matchup against unranked Evansville without attracting too much attention.No problem. The Seminoles took off on an 18-point run in the first half and had little trouble moving into the round of 32 with an 82-70 victory over the Aces in the Southeast Regional at the Orlando Arena.

EVANSVILLE, IND. -- It was only a 6-foot deep retention pond, but for the hundreds of people who lived at the Eastbrook Mobile Home Park, it was a lake, a pleasant diversion from the straight streets, right angles and modular sameness of their trailer community. Yesterday, the small lake on the eastern edge of Evansville provided some of the final stories of survival and death as recovery teams drained the water and raked through the mud and debris in search of victims of a deadly early morning tornado that destroyed the mobile home park.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- Hearing the winds whip outside his mobile home and the sound of breaking glass, Dustin Watts ordered his wife to get in the bathtub and then went to get his sons, ages 5 and 2. Watts, 28, doesn't know what happened next. But he thinks the tornado that killed at least 22 people when it struck northern Kentucky and southern Indiana early yesterday tossed his home into the air. "I don't know if it flipped over, but it felt like it did," Watts said as he sat on concrete steps that used to lead to his trailer but connected to nothing yesterday afternoon.
